I have gained almost 25lbs in the past 2 months. I'm eating out of boredom and depression. So I've decided to just eat chicken breast, tilapia and pork chops all grilled in my air fryer so no oil. I'm also going to have 1 or 2 chocolate/ banana shakes a day made with Muscle Milk so more protein. And lots of water. Does this sound like a good workable plan? Comments please.
I would buy some keto sticks at the pharmacy. Cut them in half, lengthwise so you double the number of tests. Test your urine daily and make sure you are in ketosis. If you are not, dump the bananas. Make some hard boiled eggs for snacks. Just keep them in the fridge.
A 10oz bottle of Muscle milk is only 18gr protein. But there are different kinds with different counts. I think the Fairlife shakes taste a lot better plus they are 30 gr protein. You might want to try them!
You will drop the weight quickly. In a month or 2 if this is truly all you eat!
Most people lost one to two pounds a week. If you stick to your diet, you could drop 25 pounds in about three months. The real secret of weight loss is lowering calories. So weigh and measure everything and track it somewhere like MyFitnessPal. You need 10 calories per day for every pound you maintain. To maintain 150, eat 1500. To maintain 200, eat 2000.
To lose one pound per week, cut out 3500 calories. That is is 500 per day.
Real life begins where your comfort zone ends
It's a plan but not a very DS friendly plan. Eating lean, low-fat foods is not how someone with a DS will lose weight (at least not in my experience).
Did you look at what you were eating over the last 2 months to have gained 25 pounds? It's all about going back to the basics (for the DS). Keep a food diary. High protein (at least 125 grams) and low carb (20 grams) plus lots of water (at least a gallon).
